Don’t miss out on our regular kitchen garden news and updates!
The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation is growing a food revolution from the ground up!
Comet Bay is changing the way children approach and think about food. Our children are enthusiastically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.
The fundamental philosophy that underpins the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program is that by setting good examples and engaging children’s curiosity, as well as their energy and their taste buds, we can provide positive and memorable food experiences that will form the basis of positive lifelong eating habits.
The revolution rumbled into action in 2001,when renowned cook and food writer Stephanie Alexander OAM joined forces with an inner-Melbourne school community to establish the Kitchen Garden Program at Collingwood College. Stephanie’s pioneering approach to food education is now flourishing in many schools, through the support of Australian national and state government funding.
Kitchen Garden Schools commit to a dynamic and innovative model that sees kitchen and garden classes run weekly,enabling skills-based learning that extends across the entire school curriculum. They learn skills that will last them a lifetime, and discover just how much fun it is to grow and cook their own seasonal vegetables and fruits.

We are hoping to raise awareness of the SAKG in our school community and to harness the help and support from parents and community members. This will ensure the continuation and expansion of the program to benefit our students.
Our updates will also provide news from our school, delicious recipes and menu suggestions, and event announcements.
